Who can help me with schedule planning?
Our office is fortunate enough to have two advising teams. Our FTIC Success Team advises our first time in college (FTIC) students and the Academic Team advises our transfer students. These teams will continue to be the best resource for your schedule planning, registration or academic-related needs and questions. When you book an appointment online, FTIC students should select “FTIC Advising” and our Transfer students should select “General Advising.”
I’m having trouble getting into a class, can you give me an override?
That depends. Certain cases warrant overrides and other cases do not. We recommend scheduling an appointment with your individual advising team to discuss further.
Can I walk in to see an advisor?
“Walk-in Wednesdays” occur on Wednesdays from 8:30am-12:00pm and 1:00pm-4:30pm for our FTIC Success Team. Walk-in hours are from 8:30am-12:00pm and 1:00pm-4:30pm on Fridays for the Academic Team. You must arrive at least 30 minutes prior to closing to be seen by an advisor. Appointments are required to meet with either team the rest of the week. The Office of Professional Development is closed Saturday-Sunday.
How do I see a Career Coach?
You can see a Career Coach in a few different ways. First, you will want to schedule a Career Cluster appointment to meet with a coach in a small group session. From there, you will be given access to schedule a 30-minute, one-on-one appointment with a Career Coach.
When should I see the Employer Relations Team?
You should see the Employer Relations Team if you are a graduating senior, graduating the following semester, or are in the process of applying to jobs and/or internships. This group focuses on developing key relationships with both students and employers to help individuals get connected to the business community, and talks with you about your interests and skill sets in relation to job openings.
I want to get my resume reviewed, how can I do that?
The first step is to sign up for a “Resume” Career Cluster Meeting. By attending a group session, you then will be able to schedule a one-on-one appointment with a Career Coach upon completion. This will allow you to gain additional feedback for this resume in an individual setting. Both group meetings and individual sessions can be booked here:
I have an interview soon and need help preparing. Who can I talk to?
The Employer Relations Team can assist with job and internship-specific preparation. Appointments are available Tuesday and Wednesday of each week and can be booked here. If your need is more urgent, please email CBAEmployerRelations@ucf.edu to see if there are any immediate availabilities.
I’m looking for an internship, can you get me one?
While we cannot get the internship for you, we can certainly help you prepare and navigate through the process of finding an internship opportunity! Keep a lookout for emails from CBAEmployerRelations@ucf.edu for openings sent your way, and book an appointment with your Career Coach to start the process of identifying which opportunities make the most sense for you.
I want to see if I am on pace for graduation. Who can I speak to?
The best individuals to meet with regarding graduation would be your individual advising team.
I don’t think I am going to meet the GPA requirement to get into my major. What do I do now?
We would recommend meeting with your Career Coach by selecting a “Major Exploration” meeting here.
I am not a College of Business major, but I am pursuing a minor from the College of Business. Do I have access to a Career Coach or Employer Relations in the Office of Professional Development?
Business minors can meet with the Advising Team for academic questions related to their minor. However, Career Coaches and the Employer Relations Team are able to help only students who are in a College of Business major. UCF Career Services assists students from every major and every college. We encourage you to use all resources available to you on campus.
I see that I am listed as a Pre-Major. What does that mean?
All students pursuing a degree within the College of Business are admitted to UCF as a Pre-Major (Pre-Accounting, Pre-Finance, etc.) until admission requirements are met. Once students have completed their Common Program Prerequisites (CPP) and Primary Core and have the required grade(s) and primary Core GPA, as well as GEB 3006, they will then be admitted into their desired major.
